About This Course
The obligations of managing high profile athletes falls primarily on agents, and agents rely on lawyers to advise them. This CLE course will cover NFLPA certification requirements, agent eligibility, standards of conduct, particularly the NFL’s personal conduct policy, and prohibited actions for agents. The course will also cover contractual issues between agents and players and between players and teams.
The course will also take a look at “bad client behavior” in the NFL, using real-life incidences such as the 3 am phone call, a star wide receiver throwing furniture from a Miami Beach balcony, a difficult QB skipping a game to gamble in a Las Vegas casino, dog-fight participation, DeflateGate and more.
